A simple, relatively thin, Heianjo tsuba with simple inlaid kinko studs and raised, beveled rim indicative of katchu work. The crenulated surface adds some contrast to the otherwise simple study. Most of the inlaid soft metal studs are missing from the iron plate - particularly on the omote. Condition is otherwise good with deep patina and great tekkotsu on the mimi which includes one conspicuous sword cut. 3 3/8" marugata. 5/32" thick at the mimi (a little thinner along most of the plate but picking up thickness again at the seppa-dai. Muromachi era.
